What You Need:

  • 1/2 pound Spanish chorizo, small dice
  • 1 cup yellow onions, small dice
  • 2 cup red bell pepper, small dice
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 cups sourdough bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

What You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Cook chorizo in a pan over medium heat for about one to two minutes until most of the oil is released.
3. Remove chorizo, drain and set aside.
4. In about 1 tablespoon of the chorizo oil cook the onions and bell pepper until translucent (approximately 1-2 minutes).
5. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Season mixture with salt and pepper and set aside.
6. Layer bread, chorizo, onions and peppers in an 8-inch baking dish.
7. Pour milk and eggs mixture evenly over baking dish.
8. Sprinkle with cheese.
9. Bake until cooked through and golden brown, about 60 minutes.
10. Once out of the oven, set aside to let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve and enjoy! If desired, you can easily sub pancetta or another meat for the chorizo. It would also be simple to add chopped green bell peppers as a topping for additional color.
